Three British nationals are believed to have been among seven people injured in a suspected car-ramming attack near a beach in Tel Aviv, in which an Italian tourist was killed.

A medic told Israeli television the wounded included three Brits and another Italian.

The incident, in which a Kia car ploughed into pedestrians on Tel Aviv’s beachside boardwalk, followed the killing of two British-Israeli sisters in a shooting in the occupied West Bank earlier on Friday. Their mother was seriously injured.

The driver of the car, who came from the Israeli-Arab city of Kafr Qasim, was shot dead by police officers.

In an update to its travel advice, the Foreign Office urged travellers to Israel to ‘remain vigilant at all times’.

“Heightened tensions, brought about by rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel and Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, as well as inter-community violence, increase the risk of retaliatory terrorist attacks in Israel,” it said.
